Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews (CSPRs)
A Child Safeguarding Practice Review (CSPR), formerly known as a Serious Case Review (SCR), should be carried out for every case where abuse or neglect is known or suspected and either a child dies; or a child is seriously harmed and there are concerns about how organisations or professionals worked together to safeguard the child. Other learning reviews can be carried out by the BHSCP if the criteria is not met but there is still felt to be learning from a case.
It is important if Brighton & Hove is to become a safer place for children to live for everyone to embrace the learning from reviews and take the necessary steps to help put right the issues identified. Any review should enable local partner agencies to be clear about their responsibilities, to learn from experience and improve services as a result.
Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership have a Case Review Group which considers how to review a case. Practitioners and managers can view our Guide to Local Serious Child Safeguarding Practice & other Learning Reviews here.
